    Does anyone think it's possible that we will see a blackberry smartwatch in the near future? What features would you want it to have?

    I personally would love to see something similar to the lock screen with the same style of notifications. Also would love to see an led notification and similar watch app as the current BB10 one. Maybe possibly a camera or is that too much? Let me know what you think!

    I don't think Blackberry should put out a smart watch, at least not yet. I think they need to worry about getting their phones sales up. After they get that going, then they could put some attention to other things.

    IF BlackBerry was to ever come out with a smartwatch, I wouldn't want it to have a camera. But I would definitely want it to have a vibrate option for notifications.

    I don't think Blackberry can afford to be distracted by other gadget trends. They need to sort out the failings in their core product first - the stalling sales of their mobile phones (both bbos and bb10, even though bbos is doing marginally better). They simply cant make other devices right now.



    That said a blackberry smartwatch would be quite a cool idea, would like to see a black pvd metal strapped square watch with data. No camera though. Cant see how one can find that ergonomic. Love the idea of a vibrate function, for notifications.

    I'd buy a BlackBerry watch, but does it make sense for them to make it at this time, No!

    I'd like to see a smartwatch with fitness tracking capability. Heart rate being the key item.

    Looks like it lacks SMS capability with BB10. Interesting watch though.

    I think it would carry the stigma of the old BlackBerry "spinning clock of death" icon... Ugh, it gives me the shivers just thinking about it!

    Jokes aside though, I don't know if a BlackBerry smartwatch would be perceived well, except in places where BlackBerry has a better image (of course). For example, it would probably be a flop in the U.S. unless they come out with something truly innovative.

    At the same time, they need something different in the US to rehab their image. I was watching an episode of the Blacklist I taped from a few weeks ago and they had a scene where a character mention a few things and BlackBerry Together, and the the other person said I don't follow you, and the original person said they are all things people don't want. So they either have to change their name, rehab it, or come out with something that blows the doors off of everything else. No phones is going to blow the doors off the other ones.

    Take the z10 design, and shrink it to watch size. Smart and professional looking. Very classy. I'd render it but don't have the know how. Anyone wanna take that credit? You'll be pleasantly surprised.

    They need to chew gum and walk at the same time. They need a relevant tablet and they need something that gives them some sizzle and draws peoples eyes away from the balance sheet.

    Right now they just treading water, albeit the currents are in their favor for once.

    I refuse to buy a Pebble since they abandoned BlackBerry. I'm sure my non purchase of their watch won't be missed.

    Not a chance. This is the ultimate consumer-focused mobile play in which the giants in mobile look to expand their ecosystem of devices. Blackberry is no longer in this game. Samsung, Apple, Nokia, Microsoft, Sony, etc. do their product launches in an auditorium with live streaming. Blackberry now does their product launches in a conference room.

    That's true, BlackBerry needs to focus on what's happening now. There are many things they need to work on. I don't think they should jump start on watches. At least not just yet. OS10 is still so fresh and must address all the necessary changes. Transition takes time..

    Great looking concept. Would like to see this become real as well. A smart watch that actually looks like a real watch, but has all the features of a smart watch.
